"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Slow start.

After what seems like an age since my last post, almost a full month. It's time for a catch up with the latest linocut on the bench.

Colour 1. A pale blue grey. At this stage it's hard to judge if I've gone too pale. Hopefully not.

Colour 2. A darker warmer grey.

Colour 3. The first pale green.

Colour 4. A second darker grey.

Colour 5. The first blue. A turquoise to ultramarine blend.

Colour 6. The second darker green.

Colour 7. A second darker blue.

Two further colours should see this print finished. In between working on this I have also been preparing another Mezzotint plate and managed to draw out and print a Drypoint.

Cliffs near Llangrannog.
